The scandal of the Louis d’or with a ‘horn’ from the Strasbourg mint broke out shortly after its discovery. This famous type has a curved bulge on the forehead, which was immediately understood as a horn and thus as an allusion to the fact that the king was unable to secure his succession and was betrayed by the queen. Comparisons can inevitably made to prints of the period depicting Louis with the horns of a cuckold. Even if some numismatists only classify the ‘horn’ as a random die break or error, the prevailing opinion is that it was an intended change. After the so-called ‘Affair of the Diamond Necklace’ at the court of King Louis in 1785 in which the queen was involved, the monarchy was further discredited by the appearance of these coins. Most of the pieces that were produced at the time were apparently melted down in a timely manner, but a few evidently survived.

Henry V is perhaps most well-known to the modern audience through the dramatisation of his life in Shakespeare’s eponymous historical play ‘Henry V’. The narrative of the play, based on actual events, present Henry in his element - the battlefield. Renowned amongst historians as one of the great warrior kings of his age, Henry’s impressive victories in campaigns fought during the Hundred Years’ war set him above his contemporaries. These campaigns culminated in France’s defeat at the battle of Agincourt in 1415, from which Henry returned in triumph to England. He is perhaps less associated with innovative domestic policy, however there were notable changes in this domain that occurred during his reign. Arguably most significant was his promotion of the English language in government, the official language of which had been French since the reign of William the Conqueror. He oversaw the appearance of Chancery Standard English and is the first king known to have written in English in personal letters. Unlike his father, the usurper Henry IV whose reign was plagued with rebellions which he brutally quashed, the young king embraced a more conciliatory approach to his enemies, even ensuring that the body of Richard II (the victim of his father’s usurpation) was re-interred accompanied by the appropriate rites.

This remarkably well-preserved testoon features an instantly recognisable portrait of one of the most iconic kings of England, Henry VIII, with his characteristic broad face, piercing eyes and majestic full beard. Indeed, his features as engraved on this type bear a striking similarity to the renowned portrait of the Tudor king by Hans Holbein the Younger, painted about a decade prior. In the interlude, however, much had changed: the painting may have been commissioned to celebrate the birth of his only son and heir (the future Edward VI) in 1537 by his third wife Jane Seymour, but by the time this coin was minted, Henry was married to his sixth and last wife Catherine Parr, and the dissolution of the monasteries for which his reign is remembered had been completed. The reverse of the coin features the emblematic Tudor rose, a famous amalgamation of the red rose of Lancaster and the white rose of York, the two warring factions of the ‘Wars of the Roses’ which Henry VIII’s father Henry VII had united after the Battle of Bosworth Field and his dynastic marriage to Elizabeth of York. This coin was minted in London at the royal mint, which had operated out of the secure Tower of London since at least 1279, when government records referenced “the little tower where the treasure of the mint is kept.” The dating of Testoons is one of the most secure of Henry VIII’s issues and can be divided into three distinct phases by portrait types. The first use of this striking frontal portrait coincided with introduction of the title ‘Rex Hiberniae’ or ‘King of Ireland’ in the thirty-fifth year of his reign, 1544. The majority of these coins are poorly struck and rarely survive with as much remaining detail on the portrait, which has been described as possibly the most expressive portrait of the king to be found on a coin, as this example. By this period, Henry VIII’s coinage was debased as the king took more profit from the issues to pay for his expensive military campaigns on the continent and his extravagant personal spending. Some testoons, which had base cores plated with silver as a result of this debasement, earned him the nickname ‘old copper-nose’, since the nose was the first place any base metal would show through as the silver eroded.

From the inventory of a European dealer. This remarkable scyphate-shaped tari bears two dates: Hegira 595 and Christian era 1198, the earliest Anno Domini date ever recorded on a coin, which according to Philip Grierson and L. Travaini commemorates the investiture formally granted to Frederick II and Constance by Pope Innocent III on 19 November of that year. In return the Pope received an annual cens of 1,000 ‘schifati’, cf. MEC pp. 165-6. Amalfi was an independent republic from the 7th century that managed to extract itself from Byzantine vassalage in 839 and first elected an independent duke in 958. By 944 Amalfitan merchants were already present at Constantinople, trading with Egypt by the late 10th century and rivalling Pisa and Genova in its domestic prosperity and maritime trade with Asia before the rise of the Venice. In 1073 the republic fell to the Norman countship of Apulia and was granted many rights and attained great wealth. In about 1080, Amalfitans founded a hospice for pilgrims in Islamic occupied Jerusalem, from which the Order of the Hospital (St. John of Jerusalem) later developed. Under Roger II in 1131, Amalfi passed into the kingdom of Sicily and by 1220 the Empire of Frederick II. In matters of medieval culture, Amalfi was famous for its multiculturalism, flourishing schools of law and mathematics, maritime code and the reputed Amalfitan Flavio Gioia, who in about 1300 was considered first marine pilot to have introduced the sailor’s compass to Western navigation. The date on the Amalfi tari must be connected to the fact that Islamic coinage had been dated from the time of the 5th Caliph, ‘Abd al-Malik in the 77th year of the Hagira, the migration of Muhammad and his followers from Mecca to Yathrib in AD 696/7. Amalfi had been within the Islamic monetary sphere strongly influenced by the Emirate of Sicily since the 10th century, in which the standard gold unit was the gold Tarì (meaning “fresh” or “newly minted money”), the Christian designation of Ruba’i or quarter Dinar with the ideal weight of 1.05g of gold. The idea that coins should bear a date of issue referencing the time passed since the birth of Christ was not widespread in Europe until the mid 16th century. While the learned Scythian monk, Dionysus Exiguus from Tomis, formulated the Anno Domini calendar in the 6th century and is still used to enumerate the years of both the Julian and Gregorian calendars, it was not until the advent of this issue in 1198 that European coinage was so dated. This dating system was not utilised again until 1234 by the bishopric of Roskilde on its silver deniers and in 1251 in Arabic script on the Islamic styled silver coinage by the crusader city of Acre. In the spring of 1250 the papal legate Odo of Châteauroux arrived in Syria and was scandalized to learn that the Franks were striking gold and silver coins with the name and dates of the Muslim Prophet and had them substituted with purely Christian legends and dates in the name of the Messiah, albeit written in Arabic to maintain acceptability in the region. Much later from 1372 dated groschen in the name of Charlemagne were struck on a regular basis at Aachen. Frederick II, son of Holy Roman Emperor Henry VI of the Hohenstaufen dynasty, and Constance, the posthumous daughter of Roger II de Hauteville and heiress to the Norman kings of Sicily, was an infant of only three years of age when his father died and was crowned king of Sicily on papal authority at Palermo cathedral on 17 May 1198. Frederick’s minority under his mother only lasted five months as the regent died on 27 November 1198.

The Augustale was a denomination introduced to Sicily by Frederick I in 1231. As Holy Roman Emperor as well as King of Sicily, he clearly wanted to draw parallels between himself and the emperors of Roman antiquity. Although not based on a specific ancient coin, the similarities in imagery and design between this coin and an aureus of the early empire are impossible to ignore - the classical laureate, draped and cuirassed bust in profile follows the same scheme as these earlier coins. The eagle on the reverse was less commonly seen but the stance of the bird with wings spread and head turned back bears remarkably similarity, for example, to aurei issued by Domitian (RIC II.1 143). Frederick I of Sicily, who later became Frederick II when he ascended to the throne of the Holy Roman Empire, ruled over a considerable territory spreading across much of Italy and Germany. In 1225 he also became ‘King of Jerusalem’ by virtue of marriage to Isabella II of Jerusalem, heiress to the kingdom, seeing to it that his father-in-law was dispossessed with his title transferred to the emperor. Yet despite his power over many countries and cities, Frederick was unable to prevail over the papacy. The popes during this period mistrusted the emperor on both moral and political grounds; Frederick was reported to have said that Moses, Christ and Mohammed were imposters and Pope Gregory IX went so far as to declare the emperor ‘preambulus Antichristi’ (herald of the Antichrist). Frederick was excommunicated from the Catholic church three times during his reign, although the instances of his excommunication seem to have been more political manoeuvring than in reaction to any specific moral deficiency on the behalf of the emperor. The Papal States were surrounded by land under Frederick’s rule and the fear of losing their independence and the authority of the church being taken over by the imperial powers led to much of the tension between the two parties. Frederick’s first excommunication by Gregory IX was due to his failure to complete his crusading promises made on his coronation; the emperor’s abstention from the crusades in question was however due to an epidemic that afflicted both him and his troops. Gregory, it seems, wished to keep Frederick from any position of power within or over the church and in doing so to reduce his moral credibility as ruler. After years of antagonism, the final break with the papacy came when Frederick installed his son Enzio as King of Sardinia by marrying him to Adelasia of Torres, the widow of Ubaldo II Visconti in 1238; upon the marriage, Enzo by jure uxoris would accede to the Sardinian Giudicati of Logudoro (Torres) and Gallura, covering the northern half of the Sardinia island. The Papal States had suzerainty over Sardinia and this open act of defiance against the papacy’s power in this region caused Frederick to be excommunicated once again, clearly as a punishment for this power grab. In 1250 Frederick died unexpectedly from illness amidst brutal battles with the Papacy; within 22 years of his death all of his heirs had been killed in the continuing struggle and the Papacy retained their power over the Papal States.

With the Peace of Paris in 1814 Würzburg fell to Bavaria and Ferdinand was able to return to his homeland, the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. He reigned there until his death on 18 June 1824.

From the R. T. Collection of Napoleonic Medals from the First French Republic and Empire; Ex MDC Monnaies de Collection sarl, Auction 4, 15 November 2018, lot 565. The coronation day of Napoléon was meticulously planned from the moment the emperor awoke to the sound of canon fire and his procession through the Tuileries, through to the highly-symbolic act of taking the crown from Pope Pius VII and crowning himself during the ceremony, a gesture which has been the subject of much conjecture. Napoléon’s critics have characterised this as an act of extreme arrogance that encapsulated his delusions of grandeur; his supporters, on the other hand, have represented the moment as Napoléon asserting that his position had been hard-earned through his own virtues rather than awarded as a God-given right. Whatever the motivation behind that decision, there can be no doubt that the coronation as a whole was a lavish affair, filled with symbolism, apparent in details as minute as the embroidered bees which decorated his coronation mantle, harking back to the imagery of the Merovingians, and as overt as the golden laurel wreath that he wore throughout the day, arguably the most iconic attribute of ancient Roman imperial power. The scene of the coronation is most memorably captured in the oil painting by Jacques-Louis David, an ardent supporter of Napoléon who was commissioned by him directly to create the work. In typical Napoléonic fashion, the dimensions of the painting are a modest 6m x 10m and Napoléon, of course, is in the centre of the composition.
